Used cars for £10,000 and under
You could buy a brand-new car at this budget, so as you might imagine you could end up mightily confused with the sheer diversity of used cars on offer for £10,000 never mid the new cars which could also fall into this budget!
Tread carefully, make sure you’re clear on what you want your car to deliver and try not to let your head be turned.
If you want to go for a premium model then £10,000 will buy the German techno-perfection of Audi, both its A1 and A3 models will fall into this price range as a used car, as will the globally iconic Volkswagen Golf and Polo. All these cars share exceptional build quality, real drivability, with the added bonus of a premium badge too.
You could go for a used Peugeot 2008 SUV or how about, insurance premium willing, a fun little VW Up! GTi. For exceptional reliability Honda is the go-to brand with the Jazz and Civic models offering amazing reliability and affordability.
Other Japanese models in this price bracket include the crossover/SUV Nissan Juke and Qashqai, great value for money with a wealth of useful extras.
The only problem with a £10,000 budget is that you could be in danger of simply finding you have too much choice, so drawing up a shortlist of must-have features is vitally important and sticking to that shortlist even more so!
